Berkeley is one of the world’s most respected brands. As communicators, we are guardians of the brand. We work to ensure that no matter where our community members encounter our brand – an e-newsletter, a website or a public event – they are left with an impression that reflects our stature and ethos. On this site, you will find tools, templates and resources to help unify and strengthen our collective communications.
